EPTECH 2014 SEMINARS

Mississauga - October 30

Presenter: Testforce
Topic: Practical Guide for EMI Diagnostics
Time:  11:30 AM, Salon F

Details: Today’s electronics are full of technologies presenting numerous EMI testing challenges, particularly for traditional EMI test solutions. These challenges include switching power supplies, high speed system data buses, transmission line and termination issues, spread spectrum clocking as well as the integration of wireless interfaces and connectivity. A new approach is required to effectively troubleshoot EMI issues in these modern systems. A Mixed Domain Oscilloscope incorporates a wideband Spectrum Analyzer to a traditional Mixed Signal Oscilloscope. This presentation will explore the features of this new type of oscilloscope and show how it can be used to uncover and troubleshoot transient EMI issues in modern designs.

Presenter:  Comtree Inc / Kyzen Corporation
Topic: It’s all about the Dirt – Cleaning No Cleans and Other Contaminants
Time:  1:00 PM, Salon G

Details: Manufacturers today are cleaning not just to remove flux residue.  We will explore the concerns of leaving these other contaminants, and especially no-clean flux residue, on modern electronic assemblies. Many such devices incorporate Bottom Termination Components (BTC); which limit access of the cleaning fluid to the soil. Common BTC examples include QFN, DFN, SON, LGA, MLP, and MLF packages. The cleaning agent must also match up to the soil in order to solubilize and carry it away.  Understand how to clean no-clean assemblies and provide general process conditions that will successfully remove flux residue and other contamination from under and around modern BTC components.
